Evening Reading

By Steve Gibson, Sep 10, 2007 6:00pm PDT Yes yes.. I've missed you guys too. I'm looking forward to giving Quake Wars another shot when I get back home in a few days. Of course I've still got to play through BioShock and finish Prime 3... hmmm. Things could be worse!

Lastly, I checked out the NBA Live 08 demo that hit XBLM the other day and by some kind of miracle it seems those guys finally unsucked the game. 06 was just unfinished and 07 made me want to cut myself with how sloppy it was. I now look forward to kicking Maarten's ass on the internets with NBA Live 08. I sure hope season mode stuff is good.

  • The Call of Duty 4 beta is incredibly fun. The diverse class arrangements and creation thanks to the perks and various unlockable weapons/attachments make each opponent unique. I really felt satisfied with the way everything just works so well despite its beta status, and the constant action always going on no matter how many players are on a map definitely shows the strengths of the level design. I can't wait for the full version. The only thing I can really complain about is the poor matchmaking, I am only a level 6 and I get matched up with people who are at the level cap for the beta and it can be unfair at times, but I still kick their asses. Also, the graphics don't look nearly as good as in the trailers, maybe the MP is a bit less detailed for performance issues, who knows.... it is a beta right.
